Robin Wright has been back in the news recently, thanks to her acclaimed performance in the Netflix show House of Cards — and the buzz around her looks set to continue this summer. Why? Because in her new film The Congress, the actress essays the role of “Robin Wright,” a fictionalized version of herself who sells her digital likeness to a Hollywood studio — allowing her computerized image to appear in any film the company wants — so she can care for her ailing son.

New film Neighbors (Cinema Score: B) easily won the domestic box office battle this weekend. Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, and Zac Efron’s frat comedy earned an estimated $51.1 million, making for a global total of $85 million so far. Last week’s No. 1 movie, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, fell to second place, with a weekend gross of $37.2 million for a cumulative domestic gross of $147.9 million and a worldwide gross of $550 million. The Other Woman, meanwhile, raked in $9.2 million for a domestic total of $61.7 million.
ORIGINAL POST: As kryptonite is to Superman, so a kegger is to Spider-Man. That seems to be the lesson of this weekend’s box office, anyway.
Seth Rogen and Zac Efron’s new frat comedy Neighbors drank in an estimated $19.6 million at the box office on Friday, almost twice as much as the $10.1m which was caught in the web of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Sony is projecting its superhero sequel will gross $37 million for the weekend, which would give it a cumulative domestic take of $147m by the end of Sunday.
You know those trailers that reveal so much about a film it almost seems like you don’t have to watch the actual movie? Well, the clip for the sci-fi drama Coherence ain’t one of those. In fact, despite having watched the trailer several times, we really can’t tell you much at all about the plot of this film from writer-director James Ward Byrkit.
What we can tell you is that it hits select cinemas on June 20, stars Buffy actor Nicholas Brendon among others and — per the movie’s official website – concerns eight friends at a dinner party who experience a chain of reality-bending events on the night of an astronomical anomaly. READ FULL STORY

In the ’70s-set The Quiet Ones, Jared Harris (Mad Men) portrays a British professor determined to prove that there is a scientific explanation for the seemingly supernatural phenomena besetting a young woman, played by Bates Motel actress Olivia Cooke. As The Quiet Ones, which opens this Friday, comes to us from the famously horror-obsessed U.K company Hammer, it does not spoil things too much to reveal that the prof’s plan goes wildly awry.

Eric Roberts and his spouse Eliza Roberts were guests on Monday’s episode of Entertainment Weirdly on EW’s Sirius XM channel to discuss their episode of Celebrity Wife Swap, which airs Tuesday. But we couldn’t let the Dark Knight star and onetime Oscar nominee leave without asking him about his upcoming film Human Centipede 3, the third entry of the notorious horror franchise in which people are attached together to form the grotesque titular creature.
Well, we could have let him leave without asking about it. We just didn’t. READ FULL STORY
As a keen student of the Mad Max movies, I’m never sure whether the Australian countryside will be the best, or the absolute worst, place to hole up come the inevitable apocalypse. And the trailer for the new, Cannes-selected film The Rover only makes the issue murkier.
There are essentially two kinds of alien movies — the kind in which bicycles are magically transformed into flying machines, and the kind in which people’s insides are rather less magically transformed into lunch.
Anyone who knows vampires only as the Twilight franchise’s sparkly-skinned specimens will get a rude shock if they watch the new found footage horror film Afflicted, which debuts to theaters and on VOD today.
“The thing we found exciting was the idea of a vampire film that was completely divorced of sexuality, romanticism, and melodrama,” says Clif Prowse, who directed the movie with his childhood friend and fellow Canadian Derek Lee. “What would it actually be like if you were biologically compelled to eat human blood and to kill people? What would that do to you emotionally? It seemed to us it would be a much darker, grittier psychological tale than, ‘I’m going to be young and hot forever, feel sorry for me.'”
